From your comments, the sobriety test was not denied you. Apparently, the trooper asked you to do them and you 'just asked for the officer to take [you] to jail'. Accordingly, you refused the offered test. If you do not know the elements and procedures of an ALR license hearing, I would recommend you retain a good lawyer in your area who does.
Refusing the field sobriety tests are not a basis for license suspension. Refusing the chemical test will result in a suspension if the arrest was valid. The question seems to be whether or not there was legal justification for the arrest, which will require a careful sophisticated evaluation of the other evidence of the arrest. You need an experienced DWI attorney with a record for winning ALR hearing-not all do, so select your attorney carefully. Until that is done properly, no evaluation is realistic. Have you already made your request for an ALR hearing?
You can make this argument in the ALR hearing but it likely won't hold water. A refusal is a refusal. None of these issues prevent you from blowing into a machine or submitting to a blood draw, which is what the ALR hearing is actually about. It's not about your refusal to take the field sobriety tests. Although these facts are great for a trial, especially if you have no blood draw or breathalyzer tests.
In the future you should know in advance about whether to take these tests by talking to a DWI lawyer and getting his advice. You should also understand your constitutional rights to remain silent, refuse to consent to a search of your person or vehicle, and how to handle this sort of situation so that you do not give the poilce more evidence to convict you and do not refuse a breathalyzer or blood test unless it is worth the license suspension and fines associated with the refusal, as well as the fact that you may have to go to trial with a refusal in most jurisdictions. You should retain a good DWI lawyer to handle the case.
